GL FILM's high barrier performance protects contents from moisture, oxygen, and drying.
It also provides a range of added value. GL FILM can be used to replace aluminum foil, and its transparency enables contents to be visible, thus enhancing their appeal to customers. Packages using GL FILM can also be heated in microwave ovens and inspected using metal detectors.
The market for retort foods is expanding because they can be distributed and stored at atmospheric temperatures and have a long shelf-life. The effect of retort sterilization on GL FILM’s barrier performance is minimal, meaning that our films maintain excellent barrier properties both pre and post sterilization, and as a result they are known as the global standard and a leading brand in this sector.
With the growing market for organic food, fewer food additives are being used, and demand for high barrier packaging material is increasing.
The use of transparent film also enhances sales promotion and stimulates sales by enabling contents to be visible to customers.
Due to the growth of the microwavable food market, aluminum-free packaging with high barrier performance continues to grow in demand.
The value of transparent film is increasing as it provides safety and reassurance by enabling contents to be seen and metal detectors to be used.
Medical and pharmaceutical products often require particularly high barrier performance. Because the GL FILM has barrier performance rivaling that of aluminum foil, the demand continues to grow in these industries as well.
One of the strengths of GL FILM is in clinical settings, where decisions need to be made in an instant, and having a clear package allows the contents to be confirmed without having to first open.
GL FILM's high barrier performance and resistance to degradation at high temperatures makes it highly effective for use in autoclave sterilization, similar to retort sterilization.
Aesthetics are important in a variety of applications such as cosmetics products. This means that the combination of transparency and protection provided by GL FILM make it the ideal solution.
The expansion of markets for organic products and natural cosmetics has heightened consumers’ consciousness of the eco-friendliness of packaging materials. This has also resulted in increasing demand for GL FILM, which has less impact on the environment than aluminum foil.
Electronics packaging materials for intermediate transportation. Various types of transparent vapor deposition films including GL FILM protect electronic components vulnerable to oxygen, moisture, particles/contaminants, chemicals and static electricity. Our films are also used in other applications ranging from digital displays to solar components.
Vacuum insulating materials used in refrigerators and other appliances use technology that enhances insulation performance by creating a vacuum around the insulating material and minimizing heat conduction via gas. GL FILM is used as the barrier layer in these insulating materials
The moisture content of doors covered with regular decorative sheets changes due to the effects of air conditioning, direct sunlight, and humidity. This causes differences in expansion and contraction between the side of a door facing into a room and that facing into a hallway, which can result in warpage. GL FILM helps to mitigate warpage by minimizing the transfer of moisture.
We are switching to film to reduce thickness and lower the amount of plastic used.
By switching from packages made of composite materials to monomaterial packages, we are striving to improve their recyclability.
Resources can be used effectively by taking advantage of recycled materials at the stage of raw material procurement.
We are reducing the amount of content remaining in packages to help reduce food loss.
